Of course im okay with it. That move limits me to the max 3 which you all hate and opens up the fp- so I can test the system.
You think the fact that I use MB takes away valuable fp from these 4 to 6 fp a ride/day people?

What you did is a lot worse in terms of impacting the guest than I ever could have done.

Well, then lets try this another way and ask you your own question. Do you think that's really what Disney intended?

Ummm.. can you go back and read my posts again and get your facts straight? I haven't been to Disney in almost a year, said I have zero sympathy for people using KTTW cards from past trips and also said several times that I didn't agree. I'm going to have to ask you to read what you are arguing with before I respond because you are wrong.

I'm sure they misinformed you when they didn't say "please no prior resort cards alowed"

This is actually amusing. READ THE POSTS if you want an argument. There isn't one here.

Lol by your definition there is no intent just clearly defined rules. So do you think I have the right to cancel a resort reservation or not within their rules? I didn't take my deposit back mind I tell you that? So I did pay for the band in a way.

While I am simply delighted that you are done arguing with me about things I didn't say and you were dead wrong about, I think I'll let someone else deal with you now.

We did it today, 12/1 at Epcot. We rode Soarin standby and fast passed it. We have mb and fp+. We didn't use it any other time. It's worked all week for us though. We have used it once a day.

It seems like you should be able to reserve fast passes and add one or two while you're there by tapping your band on the fast pass distribution center. That would be perfect. Or to be able to reserve fp+ for the same ride in one day. If they did either one of these things there wouldn't be a need to "double dip"

Oh well, it's still working today. We'll see about tomorrow. Headed to mvmcp tonight!

This thread is going downhill very fast.

Others may disagree with me on this, but I hope that those on-site who will be reporting their "access to FP-" experience in the next few days start one or more new threads for their reports.

Much easier for me to find first-hand reports that way, rather than having to wade through all of the "stuff" (present and undoubtedly future) on this thread to find those reports.

A room only reservation can be cancelled up to a week before check in without a penalty. The bands are shipped before that.

I don't think that's accurate. Mother Gothel, for example, posted she is at BC and her current KTTW cards do not work for FP-. Mine do. That is silly!

AGREED! Please, everyone that has an OT beef about the use of cards, old and new, take them somewhere else. Let's stay on topic here so those reporting back have a place worthy of their time!
